Apex Supercase Model #7C523-119 Review

Testing

Test Machine:

  • 1.8 Pentium
  • GA-8IRXP
  • 512MB memory
  • Mator 60 GB harddrive
  • 52X CDROM
  • sony Burner 24X10X40
  • Geforce3 500Ti
  • 12 volts-11.71
    5 volts-4.98
    3.3 volts-3.3

    Moving to the rear of the case; I found that there is only room for one fan to blow air out of the case. There is an option here, you can either use a 80mm or 92mm fan which is great when only having one slot.

    Nice to see that they used thumb screws, always a pain finding that screw driver.:)

    Front USB ports great for you gamers or people with camera's. Its alot easier then trying to connect to the back of the case all the time. No instructions on how to connect to the motherboard.


    There is one thing that I wish they had on all cases like this one; a handle, great for those LAN party's.:)

    Everything is supplied, extra screws as well, instructions are very detailed.

    Conclusion

    This case has alot of good aspects but it does have its faults. No power supply specs, no speaker, and only one rear fan slot were the biggest disappointments. Other then that I like the design and layout of the case. They put alot of effort into making the case easy to work with the least amount of tools. If you are a new builder looking for a starter case to build a computer, then I would recommand this one, if you are a advanced builder there is other cases more suited to your needs.

    Pros

  • Air intake filter
  • Harddrive rack on the bottom
  • Removeable 3 1/2" and harddrive rack
  • Thumb screws on the rear panels
  • Handle to carry case
  • Very affordable
  • Cons

  • No case fans included
  • One rear fan slot only
  • Only two USB ports
  • No speaker
  • Top panel doesn't remove
  • No power supply specs
